Welcome to First Coast Audiology and First Coast Brain Builders
Our practice is proud to provide quality speech, language and hearing services to Jacksonville communities and neighboring areas. Our patient-centered approach utilizes the latest technologies and evidence-based therapies to establish individualized treatment plans for children and adults. We understand how the brain works and go beyond the traditional audiogram to see how you or your child process information. This knowledge of the brain has led us expand our services to children and adults through First Coast Brain Builders. FCBB uses an interprofessional model of intervention. Our team is composed of Audiologists, Speech-Language Pathologist, and an Education Specialist.
In addition to expert-informed care, we are committed to making our hearing healthcare services accessible to everyone. We work with Lend an Ear Outreach, a nonprofit connecting people living below the poverty line to hearing healthcare. Our practice is also proud to serve Veterans by participating in the VA’s Community Care Network program. Our goal is to transform hearing health so that you can live life fully.

Speech & Auditory Processing
I am thankful for the professional and helpful manner of Melisa Sharpe - she and her staff have been amazing in helping me to adapt to my new hearing aids - finding the ones that are the best for me and working with me to get them adjusted to my lifestyle. They make it easy to communicate and are very responsive to phone, text, and email communications. I would absolutely recommend First Coast Mobile Audiology for your hearing needs.
